Simplified Interior Design Update: Memphis Office & Home Builders Show

OK…how in the WORLD did January 31st get here so fast?!?!?!? I mean…this month just FLEW by! There has been so much going on in the Simplified Interior Design world. And because we are all so busy all the time and don’t usually have time to update everyone on everything, we decided we would take one blog post a month and just tell you guys what all is going on in our world! So once a month you will hear from myself, Maddie or Jeremy about new happenings going on with the Simplified Team.

Well appropriately enough the first month of the year has been spent on new goals for 2014, planning, scheduling, moving, expanding and SO much more! For those who don’t know…we are opening up an office in Memphis (since I am currently living in the area)! We have selected the location and signed the lease! We will be moving in no later than March 1st!! I just love this location because of so many things…floor to ceiling windows, bare plan to work with, exposed ceiling, industrial look and the ability to start with a clean slate. Check out the before pictures…

NOW…I know it doesn’t look like much right now…but stay tuned for the after pictures! I think it is going to turn out to be a great looking space!!!

We are also bringing a new element to the Memphis office…a small lighting gallery!!! As you all know, one of the most important things I stress to clients is lighting. Since I am such an advocate I decided what better way to get my foot in the door in the Memphis market but to add a lighting gallery of my FAVORITE lighting vendor.

Visual Comfort

You can check out some of their stuff on this link…and I will also get the items in stock in the store up on the website as soon as they come in. Look for them by the first of April 🙂 My rep sent me a sample of what the gallery could look like once it is up and installed…


Isn’t that SOOOO good looking??? I am super excited to see how the space lays out for the new office!


We have also been given the amazing opportunity to be a part of the Build Smart Partners booth at The Home Show February 20-22!

And on a personal note…here is a little bit about what is going on in the lives of the Simplified Team!

Madeleine (aka Maddie to me) says that life feels a bit like a whirl wind at the moment!! Between preparing for their little boy Waylon Tucker to arrive in April, focusing on building up her client base and the growth of the SID team…it is definitely a fast moving and exciting time! Going into the new year with such strong motivated people and a wide spread support system will definetly payoff.  She truly feels like 2014 is going to be an excellent year for personal and buisness growth. She can not wait to see what the future holds!

Jeremy can’t believe he is FINALLY entering his last quarter of school!! (GO JEREMY!!!) Putting four years worth of work together in three months is much harder than he had thought it would be but is excited to see it all come together. He says he is having a wonderful time working with the Simplified team, and is looking forward to the home show in February. He is staying busy with design, and playing with the idea of making custom wood frames on the side. Stay tuned everyone…we might have some cool new items on the store page soon 🙂

And for me…life just can’t seem any crazier right now haha! Brian (hubs) and I decided to rent out my condo in Nashville…which neither of us have NEVER taken on before! Thankfully the process was not QUITE as bad as it could have been…but we spent MANY hours interviewing people, moving my stuff out, patching holes, painting and DEEP cleaning in the 10 days that I was in town this month. SOOO thankful to our family who came out and helped! We couldn’t have done it without you. I also spent two of those ten days with the FAB

Kathleen Murray

shooting three homes I worked on last year. WHEW…those were two LOOOOONG days of staging and shooting and selecting and editing! I can’t wait to see her amazing work!! It will be up on the website SOON! While in Memphis this last month, I found an office space, signed the lease and started on the construction process, met and interviewed three PR teams, met with the amazing Brad Shapiro of Shapiro and Company and visited a BNI group here in the area. And all the while…we are expecting out first little boy Elijah Cole the first of May!!!


It is an exciting time for all the members of Simplified Interior Design. We hope you have had a fabulous week!!


Happy Friday!!!
